As a mom of three boys, the only time I seem to have to do the things I love is on the fly. I love card making as well as other paper related crafts and this blog is dedicated to that passion!

Hi everyone! I have a question...is it wrong to LOVE paper? I love paper so much that I sometimes find myself dreaming of patterns in my sleep! I find that certain papers can change my mood, just like certain songs on the raido do! I feel the same way about fabric too. I was in the fabric store the other day and it felt like I was walking among huge sheets of gorgeous colored and patterned paper. It honestly felt like heaven. Whenever I'm in the fabric store I wish that I had a great big mansion so that I could dedicate a room to each great fabric and color combination I see!
Anyway, I sat down tonight completely uninspired until I pulled out a pack of paper I purchased recently. This particular pack is by Stella and Rose, the Hattie Papers. The paper in this stack is actually pretty masculine, which is great because I am surrounded by boys in this life and I constantly need boy cards! I was at Michaels the other day and found a really cute $1 stamp of a ferris wheel. I decided that these two things, the paper and the stamp, were going to be the jumping off point for tonight's card.
So here's what I came up with. In case you're wondering, the marquee in the background is from the Storybook cart page 68.
